Why HotelsByDay ?
Have a Question?
Is HotelsByDay a service for booking hotel rooms by the hour?
We offer Day-rooms, set on a block of hours during the day. Our time-bands are predetermined and thus you cannot book a room 'by the hour'. We don't believe in rushing, which is why our time bands range from three hours up to 12 hours, and at a better value rate than booking by the minute or hour. Or even 'by night' for that matter...
Can I pay for my room in cash or check?
Yes. Upon check-in, let the receptionist know you'd like to pay in cash. Don't forget that you also need to cover incidentals, which are usually around $100 per booking, depending on the hotel.
How old do I have to be to book a hotel room?
The minimum age to book a hotel room is 18 years old. However, some hotels are more strict and will not allow any person under 21 to check-in. To be safe, we ask that you be at least 21 years old to book
What type of room am I assigned for my day booking?
Generally, day-use rooms are 'run of the house' - meaning that whatever room is vacant will be assigned to you. However, the hotel reserves the right to assign specific rooms on the website such as a 'King Room' or 'Double Bed'
Specific room assignments can also be requested at check-in. Make sure to ask the front desk for a room type that you prefer and they will assign it to you if they have the availability.
Hotels have set specific rooms for day stays, so generally you would be assigned what is available. Although you are more than welcome to request anything specific when checking in!
What if I want to check in earlier or stay later - can the hotel deny me a room?
Yes, they can. Essentially, a day room is guaranteed for the hours listed, which has been extensively negotiated on your behalf. Any changes to booking times are subject to the hotel's discretion.
What is the cancellation policy?
You have two options to book with HotelsByDay:
- You can "pay at the hotel" which grants you free cancellation up to the same day.
- You can also select a "non-refundable" booking. This means that you'll need to provide credit card details to book a day room. Once booked, the hotel will not allow us to change the date, cancel, or refund the stay.
